Brock Williams was born on January 11, 1949 in Birmingham, Alabama as one of eleven children. Brock joined the Air Force as soon as he graduated high school. Four short years later, in 1971, he married the love of his life, Patty Williams in Massachusetts. Together, they had three sons, Derek, Shawn, and Adam, and later welcomed Rhone Booth into their family. Brock spent 29 years in the Air Force and traveled the world while serving. He retired in 1996 and went back to school to complete his Ph.D. Brock loved to be called Dr. Williams after that, and became a Business Professor at Metro Community College in Omaha, Nebraska, where he worked full-time until 2016. Once retired, Brock continued to teach online classes part-time, but also really enjoyed spending time with Patty and his family. Brock became a pilot several years ago and enjoyed flying his plane whenever he could.
Brock passed away on December 15, 2017 and is survived by his loving wife, Patty; his four boys, Derek, Shawn, Adam, and Rhone; his daughter-in-laws, Amber, Becky, and Kristen; and his two granddaughters, Lexie and Layla, who lovingly called him Bumpa.
